Prostate MRI Detects More Cancers Than Standard US-Guided Biopsy

May 20, 2018

Magnetic resonance imaging before biopsy for prostate-cancer detection is superior to standard transrectal ultrasonography-guided biopsy among men at risk for prostate cancer, according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Read the article here.

Adverse Prostate Cancer Pathology Accurately Predicted With MRI

February 19, 2018

Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MP-MRI) can accurately predict adverse pathologic features at the time of radical prostatectomy (RP) for localized prostate cancer, data presented at the 2018 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium suggest. Read the article here.

Prostate MRI

September 3, 2017

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the prostate may be used in many clinical scenarios, including primary screening, active surveillance, and in patients with a previous negative biopsy and rising PSA. Scott Eggener, MD, explains whether MRI is warranted in each of these situations and the benefits and challenges this technology presents. Read the article here.

New PET scan can detect prostate cancer earlier than MRIs and CT scans

April 9, 2017

Loyola Medicine is the first center in the Midwest to offer the first effective PET/CT scan for prostate cancer patients. The scan can detect the location and extent of cancer that has recurred after initial treatment and spread to other parts of the body. Prostate PET/CT scans can detect cancer earlier than either CT scans […]

Prostate Multiparametric MRI Feasible for PCa Screening

February 19, 2017

Robert K. Nam, MD, from the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in Toronto, and colleagues examined the feasibility of prostate MRI as the primary screening test for prostate cancer in a cohort of unselected men from the general population. All participants underwent prostate multiparametric MRI and random or targeted biopsies as well as prostate-specific antigen testing. […]

Roswell Park-Led Study: Photoacoustic Imaging Is Promising Option for Noninvasive Monitoring of Prostate Cancer

February 19, 2017

A team of scientists led by researchers from Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo have demonstrated that photoacoustic imaging (PAI) may be an effective tool for more accurately viewing and monitoring prostate cancer. Photoacoustic imaging of enabled good discrimination between cells with and without the cancer marker, PSMA. Read the article here.
